Teaching Style:
The only way to learn how to program a computer is by programming a computer. The more time spent doing so, the better the programmer you will become. Therefore most of the class time should be spent in a development environment developing solutions to problems programmatically. In order to retain what is learned in the classroom, plenty of homework is needed, solving problems with programming languages and learning how to think like an engineer.

The average computer programmer reads 1 programming book each year... that's why they are average! :-) Reading the textbook is not only required in my courses, but just plain expected! These are college courses, and as such, need to teach you college level material, both in length and format. Read the book. You will love it!

One of the most important factors to learning is enjoyment and laughter. I try to work these into every classroom experience. Most students do not laugh at my jokes, they just laugh at the fact that I think I am funny. And that is okay, because I crack myself up! :-D
